"I highly recommend Alicia's NLP workshop to all moms and dads who would like to communicate better with their children. Alicia provided practical, useful examples and tools on how to enable us to to talk to our children so they will listen. The Powerful story and song added to the course tremendously by providing an energetic, empowering means of dealing with bullying."

Michal Sirton | Parent

“Being a magician, I spend a lot of time with youngsters. Bullying and self-esteem have always been an issue for kids, even more so these days. Not enough is being done to help with this so I was very excited to hear that you have put together a program and especially one that is aimed at younger children. Prevention is better than cure so getting the message to them at an earlier age is vital. The song that you have written is strong and exciting and I can see kids just loving to sing along and participate. The moral in the story is easy to follow and the song will provide young ones with a ‘powerful’ tool to cope with victimisation and low esteem; your book and CD combination is going to be a hit. I encourage new parents or parents who are looking for advice and help with their parenting to do this course.”

How to get the best out of your students; inspire them, support them and help them focus.

"On Monday afternoon the 19 October the teaching staff attended a lecture given by Alicia Thomas-Woolf on NLP, Neuro Linguistic Programming.  It was a most informative and worthwhile lecture on how to talk so others listen, how to reframe what you say by stressing the positive, not to use negative words, to anchor your instruction with a  specific time. She also read the book she had authored on Bullying and the teachers interactively performed  ‘Power Poses’ to her song on how to empower yourself against a bully.  One cannot change the bully, but you can change your reaction to them. Thank you Alicia!"
